The blacksmith’s shop and cottage was built by Thomas Brennand in 1905. This was the perfect place for a blacksmith as it was the crossroads to all of the district. Also being the local Post Office, it was a great gathering place. The Brennand Family donated 2½ acres of their farm to the National Trust. Locals restored the blacksmith and cottage and it was opened to the public in 1968. The museum has grown considerable thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers.
